Welcome to the official travel guide for the capital of Greenland

Nuuk is the capital of Greenland, balancing commerce and culture with fresh air and stunning views. Nuuk's embrace of both the traditional and modern can be seen in the city's dynamic cultural life and way of life. The city bursts with local entrepreneurs, nature oriented foods and sustainable activities, that makes this city an ideal destination for eco tourists.

While Nuuk hosts a distinctly urban feel (despite its small size), nature is never far. The iconic mountains of Quassussuaq/Lille Malene and Ukusisaat/Store Malene can be tackled on a hike just outside of downtown. It's not long after departing Nuuk Harbour that the fjord transitions to a true wilderness of snow-capped mountains and barren islands.

    The old ship yard in Nuuk can be found in Colonial Harbour and offers you some great views over the fjord - if you are lucky you can catch sunsets like this.

    As the photographer behind this shot @sjetravels points out, it can be a bit scary to sail around icebergs In the fjord. But no worries! All captains of tour boats are educated, certified, trained and experienced in manoeuvring among the ice.
